Thanks to Wendy, who spotted this unique (to us, so far) set of 1978 St. Charles kitchen cabinets that came up for sale on craigslist in St. Louis. The cabinet boxes are steel, as usual. But the door and drawer fronts seem to be crafted from wood strips, with a natural tone wood bar and wood handles at the top. A very earthy sort of 70s design concept. Hey, I also quite like the color of the countertops. Does anyone know what they would have called this color? Continue for eight more photos of How The 70s Was Done…
The seller sent me additional photographs and gave me permission to feature them on the blog, after I explained that I had never seen this door style design before and love to archive the vintage examples that we find. Thank you!
Seriously, these vintage St. Charles kitchens were amazing — so many features. I am soooo tempted to get in the Ranger and drive down and get these myself, for my office remodel. Seriously.
